Rauli and Sauli Kosonen: O'DD

A contemporary circus solo for the future.

O'DD oscillates in a transformation of visions, sounds, light, surfaces and science fiction. It is the next new direction of contemporary circus: its future and its dreamed reality that leads us to the transient world of being human. O'DD's energy is what we dream of being in our imaginations, but fail to release to the reality surrounding us.

In addition to a contemporary circus performance, O'DD is an architectural creation, a futuristic vision of the traditional circus tent, a white pavilion. The imaginative space made possible by architecture creates illusions and tricks of the light. The audience is inside the space. This is something we have not seen before.
